Default 1 Lb. Loss Discouraging ???

We all have weeks where we lose 1 pound and were wishing for more. Sometimes it can be discouraging. I found this calendar of loss when I was cleaning out drawers and thought it might be motivational.

If I lost 1 pound each week of 2008:

By Valentine's Day... I'd be 7 pounds lighter
By St. Patrick's Day... I'd be 11 pounds lighter
By Easter... I'd be 16 pounds lighter
By Memorial Day... I'd be 23 pounds lighter
By Flag Day... I'd be 25 pounds lighter
By U.S. Independence Day... I'd be 27 pounds lighter
By Labor Day... I'd be 36 pounds lighter
By Columbus Day... I'd be 41 pounds lighter
By Halloween... I'd be 44 pounds lghter
By Thanksgiving... I'd be 47 pounds lighter
By Christmas Eve... I'd be 51 pounds lighter
And By this time next year..... I'd be 52 pounds lighter

Makes the 1 pound loss seem more exciting doesn't it? Sorry to all my friends in Canada the paper I found only had U.S. holidays

Thanks! One pound lost seems very exciting now and a 30 pound weight loss seems more than manageable!!! I'll make sure to remember this if ever get disappointed with only losing a pound.

Mini Goal: 193, a total of a 20 lbs loss for the summer, by the end of August

Smile In the book he says to expect a 1-2 lb lose each week

In the book, Dr. A. says to expect a 1-2 lbs weight lose during Phase 2. So, why be discouraged? It is considered to be healthier to lose weight slower.

We all need a large dose of patience!! Now, hurry up and get some.

Per my fitday records I can plan on losing a 1/2 pound a week. It's slow, but at least I'm going in the right direction most of the time.
